Geikie Gorge twilight

January 23rd, 2012

Im definitely showing signs of improvement, with 2 posts in two weeks!  This is another shot from my latest trip to the Kimberley last year.  I haven’t been into Geikie Gorge for quite a few years, as its near Fitzroy Crossing just off the main road and if i’m going that way the Gibb River Rd is my preference.

Geikie Gorge Twilight reflections

Camping around Fitzroy Crossing is a bit scarce, unless you want to stay in a camp ground in the town, which i don’t, as it’s not really my favourite town… though in saying that, it does appear to have improved in the last 10 years, which was the last time i stopped there.

Geikie Gorge National Park is part of the King Leopold Ranges, the same ancient Devonian reef that incorporates Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek.  It was formed about 400 million years ago by ancient lime secreting algae (pre-dating coral) and ranges from 50-200 metres high.  Quite a spectacular sight really, especially as the last of the sunset reflects off the walls, or, as with this shot, the after sun twilight.

I took the boat tour the morning before, and whilst its a great way to see more of the Gorge and hear the interesting commentary, its not a great place to shoot images.  I did however spot the location for this shot on the boat tour and came back later that afternoon to hike into it.  It was a magic evening with the wind dropping right off to nothing just on sunset showing this magic reflection.  The long walk back in the dark (about 1.5 hours) along the sandy creek bed (hard work!) was eerie with the Gorge walls towering over me.  Amazing place and well worth the effort of walking.

This is a digital composite shot made of about 18 exposures (no bracketing) well after sunset.  Shot with the Canon 5D Mk II  and the 24mm f1.4 L lens
